VTVAKE, my soul, and with the sun 
Thy daily stage cf duty run ; 
Shake off dull sloth, and early rise 
To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

"Redeem thy mis-spent time that's past, 
And live this day as if thy las: ; 
Improve thy talent with due care. 
For the g~eat day thyself prepare. 

Let all thy converse be sincere.

And all thy secret thoughts surveys.

In ardent love and cheerful praise.

TTTAKE and lift up thyself, my heart, 

\ \ And with the angels bear thy part, 
"Who all night long unwearied sing 
Glory to the Eternal King. 

I wake. I wake, ye heavenlv choir, 
May your devotion me inspire. 
That I like you my ago may spend, 
Like you may on my God attend. 

May I like you in God delight. 

II ive all day long my Gon in sisrht, 
Perform like you my Maker's will, 
O may I never more do ill 

Had I vour wings to heaven I'd fly, 
But God shall that defect supply, 
And my soul, winged with warm desire, 
Shall all day long to heaven aspiie, 

Paf.t IIL 

n LORY to Thee Who safe hast kept 

vT And hast refreshed me while I slept ; 

Grant, Loud, when I from death shall wake, 

I may of endless light partake. 

I would not wake, nor rise again. 

E en heaven itstlf I wouli disdain, 

Wert Thou not Vhe>e to be enjoyed, 

And I in hymns to be employed. 

Heaven is, dear Losn, where'er Thou art, 

O never, then, from me depart ; 

Tor to my soul 'tis hell to te 

But for one moment without Thee. 

Loan, I my vows to Thee renew. 

Scatter my sins as morning dew ; 

Guard my first springs of thought and will, 

And with Thyself my spirit fill. 

Direct, control, suggest this day 

All I design, or do, or say : 

That all my powers with* all their might 1 

In Thy sole glory may uuite. 

Doseoiogyto be sunn at the end of each Pirt. 
Praise God. from Whom all blessings flew; 
Praise Him. all creatures here below ; 
Praise Him above, angelic host ; 
Praise Fatheb, Bom, aud Holt Ghost. 



" His compassions fail not ; th 
VEW every morning is the love 
i\ Our wakening and uprising prove ; 
Through sleep and darkness safely brought, 
Restored to life, and power, and thought. 
New mercies, each returning day, 
Hover around us while we pray ; 
New perils past, now sins forgiven, 
New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven. 
If on our daily course our mind 
Be set to hallow all we find, 

ey are new every morning. 
Now treasures still, of countless price, 
God will provide for sacrifice. 
The trivial round, the common task, 
Will furnish all we need to ask, 
Room to deny ourselves, a road 
To brim: us daily nearer God. 
Only, O Losd, in thy dear love 
Fit us for perfect rest above; 
And help us, this and every day, 
To live more nearly as we pray. Amen. 

Hymn 3. 

M ne that followeth Me shall not walk in 

OJESTT, Lord of light and grace, 
Thou brightness of the Father's Face, 
Thou fountain of eternal light, 
Whose beams disperse the shades of night ; 
Como. noly Sun of heavenly love, 
Come in Thy radiance from above, 
And to our inward hoarts convey 
The Holy >pi~it's cloudless ray. 
So we the Father's help will claim, 
And ring the Father's glorious Name, 
And His Almighty grace implore 
That we may stand, to fall no more. 
Mav He our actions deign to bless, 
And loose the bonds of wickedness ; 

darkness, but shall have the light of life." 

From sudden falls our feet defend, 
And guide us safely to the end. 
May faith, doep rooted in the soul, 
Subdue our flesh, our minds control: 
May guile depart, find discord cease,

Dead to herself, and dead 

In Him to all beside.

In all His power and love 

Henceforth alive in me.

Nor let thy faithless heart despise 

The peace He- comes to bring. 

As Judge, on clouds of light, 

He soon will come again, 
And His true members all unite 

With Him in heaven to reign.

Let sin's dark deeds be gone ;

The new man all put on.

\T The end of things created: 
The Judge of all men doth appear 
On clouds of glory seated : 

The trumpets sound, the graves restore 
The dead which they contained hefore ; 

Prepare, my soul, to meet Him. 

The dead in CnsiST are first to rise 

At that last trumpet's sounding ; 
Caught up to meet Him m the skies, 

With joy their Losn surrounding; 
No gloomy fears their souls dismay; 
His presence sheds eternal day 

On those prepared to meet Him. 

The ungodly, filled with guilty fears, 

Behold His wrath prevailing ; 
In woe they rise, but all their tears 

And sighs are unavailing. 
The dav of grace is past and gone ; 
Trembling they stand before His throne, 

All unprepared to meet Him. 

Great Judge, to Thee onr prayers we pour, 

In deep abasement bending; 
O shield us through that last dread hour, 

Thy wondrous love extending; 
May we in this our trial day, 
With faithful hearts Thy word obey, 

And thus prepare to meet Thee. Amen.

" Behold 1 bring you good tidings of great joy." 

CHRISTIANS, awake, salute the happy morn, 
Whereon the Saviour of mankind was born; 
Rise to adore the mystery of love, 
Which hosts of angels chanted from above ; 
With them the joyful tidings first begun 
Of God Incarnate and the Virgin's Sox. 
Then to the watchful shepherds it was told, 
Who heard the angelic herald's voice, " Behold, 
I bring good tidings of a Saviour's birth 
To you and all the nations upon eartli ; 
This day hath God fulfilled His promised word, 
This day is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord." 
He spake; and straightway the celestial choir 
In hyms of joy, unknown before, conspire: 
The praises of redeeming love they sang, 
And heaven's whole orb with alleluias rang 
God's highest glory was their anthem still, 
Peace upon earth, and unto men good-will. 
To Bethlehem straight th' enlightened shepherds ran, 
To see the wonders God had wrought for man ; 
Then to their flocks, still praising God, return, 
And their glad hearts with holy rapture burn; 
To all the joyful tidings they proclaim, 
The first apostles of the Saviouk's Name. 
Oh ! may we keep and ponder in our mind 
God's wondrous love in saving lost mankind ; 
Trace we the Babe, Who hath retrieved our loss, 
From the poor manger to the bitter cross ; 
Tread in His steps, assisted by His grace, 
Till man's first heavenly state again takes place. 
Then may we hope, the angelic hosts among, 
To join, redeemed, a glad triumphant throng: 
He that was born upon this joyful day 
Around us all His glory shall display; 
Saved by His love, incessant we shall sing 
Eternal praise to heaven's Almighty King. Amen.

Whom heaven with songs of joy received : 
Whose angels see the Fathke's Face

And, while they praise their glorious King, 
A hymn for Martyrs sweetly sing. 

A voice from Ram ah was there sent, 

A voice of weeping and lament. 

While Rachel mourned her children sore 

Whom for the tyrant's sword she bore. 

Triumphal is their glory now 

Whom earthly suffering could not bow; 

For whom by cruel torments rent, 

A voice from llamah was there sent. 


Fear not, O little flock and blest, 
The lion that your life oppressed: 
To heavenly pastures ever new 
The heavenly Shepherd leadeth yon, 
Who dwelling now on Sion's hill 
The Lamb's own footsteps follow still, 
By tyrant there no more distressed ; 
Fear not, O little flock and blest 

And every tear is wiped away 

By your dear Fathkb's hands for aye: 

Death hath no power to hurt you more; 

Your own is life's eternal shore. 

And all who. good seed bearing, weep,

BLESSED DAY, when first was poured 
The Blood of our redeeming Lord! 
O Blessed Day, when first began 
His sufferings borne for sinful man ! 
Scarce entered on this life of woe, 
His Infant Blood begins to flow; 
A foretaste of His death He feels, 
An earnest of His love reveals. 
From heaven descending to fulfil 
The bidding of His Father's will, 
A victim even now He lies 
Before the day of sacrifice. 
For love of us His woes begin ; 
The Sinless suffers for our sin; 

The Law's great Maker for our aid 

Obedient to the Law is made. 

The wound He through the Law endures 

Our freedom from that Law secures; 

Henceforth a holier law prevails, 

The law of love which never fails. 

Lord, circumcise our hearts, we pray, 

And take what is not Thine away; 

Write Thine own Name within our hearts, 

Thy law upon our inmost parts. 

O Lord, the Virgin-born, to Thee 

Eternal praise and glory be ; 

"Whom with the Father we adore 

And Holy Ghost for evermore. Amen. 

Hymn 57. 

*' Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." 

THE Word, with God the Fathfr One 
Before the heavens and earth were made, 
Is now the Virgin's new-born Son, 
Upon her lowly bosom laid. 
Already o'er His sinless Head 
The streams of wrath begin to flow ; 
Already on His infant bed 
The taste of grief He deigns to know. 
The lowliest poverty he bears 
That we may be with wealth supplied ; 

He weeps ; O precious grief and tears! 
Through Him the world is purified. 
An humble dress, a mean abode, 
A life obscure His glory hide ; 
Proud man, behold thy lowly God, 
And let the sight destroy thy pride. 
Jf.8U, Who earnest from on high 
To be the Lamb for sinners slain, 
Leave not Thy ransomed flock to die. 
Nor let Thy toil be spent in vain. Amen.

To the world its God announcing

Gold the King of kings proclaimeth,

By light their way to Light they trod, 
And by their gifts confessed their God. 
Within the Jordan's sacred flood 
The heavenly Lamb in meekness stood, 

That He, to Whom no sin was known, 

Might cleanse His people from their own. 

And oh ! what miracle divine, 

When water reddened into wine; 

He spake the word, and forth it flowed 

In streams that nature ne'er bestowed. 

All glory, Jesu, be to Thee 

For this Thy glad Epiphany 

Whom with the Fathee we adore 

And Holy Giiost for evermore. Amen.

AS with gladness men of old 
Did the guiding star behold ; 
As with joy they hailed its light, 
Leading onward, beaming bright ; 
So, most gracious Lonn, may we 
Evermore be led to Thee. 

As with joyful steps they sped 
To that lowly manger-bed ; 
There to bend the knee before 
Him Whom heaven and earth adore 
So may we with willing feet 
Ever seek the mercy-seat

And, when earthly things are past, 
Bring our ransomed souls at last 
Where they need no star to guide, 
Where no clouds Thy glory hide.

Need they no created light ; 
Thou its Light, its Joy, its Crown, 
Thou its Sun which goes not down ; 
There for ever may we sing 
Alleluias to our King. Amen.

Of forty days is made complete.

Of every season, saaciitied. 

More sparing therefore let us make 

The words we speak, the food we take, 

Deny ourselves In mirth and sleep, 

In stricter watch our senses keep. 

In prayer together let us fall, 

And cry for mercy, one and all ; 

And weep before the Judge, and say, 

Oh, turn from us Thy wrath away.

Nor let the honour of Thy Name 
Be by another put to shame. 
Forgive the sin that we havp wrought, 
Increase the good that we have sought ; 
That we at length, our wanderings o'er, 
May please Thee here and evermore,

Tempted, and yet undefiled.

Chilly dew-drops nightly shed ; 
Prowling beasts about Thy way; 
Sro'ies Thy pillow; earth Thy bed. 
Shall not we Thy sorrows share, 
And from earthly joys abstain, 
Fasting with unceasing prayer, 
Glad with Thee to suffer pain ?

those days He did eat nothing."

Such as ministered to Thee.

And our confessions pour, 
Teach us to feel the sins vtp own, 

And hate what we deplore.

Beam hope upon the heart. 
When we disclose our wants in prayer, 

May we our wills resign ; 

And not a thought our bosoms share, 
Which is not wholly Thine.

Such infinite affliction ; 
None ever felt a grief like His

For us those agonizing woes

Which before the Cross I spend, 
Life, and health, and peace possessing 

From the sinner's dying Friend. 
Here I rest for ever viewing 

Mercy poured in streams of Blood; 
Precious drops, my soul bed 
Plead and claim my peace with God. 

Truly blessed is the sta+ion, 

before His (Jro»s to lie, 
Whilst I see divine compa-- 
Beaming in His languid Eye. 

Fix my thankful heart on Thee, 
Till I taste Thy full salvation 
And Thine unveiled glory see. Amen.

By crown of piercing thorn ! 
O bleeding Head, so wounded, 

Reviled, and put to scorn ! 
Death's pallid hue comes o'er Thee,

" Now there stood by the Cross of Jesus His Mother." 

Who, on Cueist's dear Mother thinking 
Such a cup of sorrow drinking, 
"Would not share her sorrows deep 

A T the Cross her station keeping 
A Stood the mournful Mother weeping, 
i Where He hung, the dying Loed ;

Felt the sharp and piercing sword.

Of the sole-begotten One ;

Vho, on Christ's dear Mother gazing

Born of woman, would not weep ? 

For His people's sins chastised 

She beheld her Son despised, [twined.

Saw Him then from judgment taken, 
And in death by all forsaken, 

Till His Spirit He resigned.

Stir in me the same emotion, 

Fount of love, Redeemer kind. 
That my heart fresh ardour gaining 
And a purer love attaining, 

May with Thee acceptance find. Amen.

Evening. sleep shall he sweet.

The Father's co-eternal • 

Of Light invisible true Light. 
Thine Israel's keeper day and night ; 
Our great Creator and our Guide, 
"Who times and seasons dost 
Refresh at night with quiet rest 
Our limbs by daily toil oppressed. 
That while in weary house of clay 
A little longer here we stay. 
Oar flesh in Thee may sweetly sleep, 
Our souls with Thee their vigils keep. 

"We pray Thee, while we dwell below, 
Preserve us from our ghostly foe ; 
Nor let his wiles victorious be 
O'er them that are redeemed by Thee. 
O Losn of all. witli us abide 
In this our joyful Easter-tide ; 
From every weapon death can wield 
Thine own redeemed for ever shield. 
All praise be Thine, O risen Lord, 
From death to endless life restored ; 
All praise to God the Father be 
And Holy Ghost eternally. Amen. 

Hymn 119. Rogation Daps. 

The eyes of all wait upon Thee, O Lord; and Thou givest them their meat in 
due season.'' 

Thine too by right, and ours by grace, 

LOPwD, in Thy Name Thy servants plead, 
And Thou hast sworn to hear ; 
Thine is the harvest. Thine the seed, 

The fresh and fading year. 
Our hope, when autumn winds blew wild, 

We trusted, Loud, with Thee ; 
And still, now spring has on us smiled, 

We wait on Thy decree. 
The former and the latter rain, 

The summer sun and air. 
The green ear, and the golden grain, 

All Thine, are ours by prayer. 

The wondrous growth unseen, 
The hopes that soothe, the fears that brace, 

The love that shines serene. 
So grant the precious things brought forth 

By sun and moon below. 
That Thee in Thy new heaven and earth 

We never may forego. 
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 

The God Whom we adore, 
Be glory, as i: was. is now, 

And shall be evermore. Amen.

' If I go not away the Comforter will not come unto you ; but if I depart I will f s eui 
Him unto you.' 1 

OUR blest Redeemer, ere He breathed 
His tender last farewell, 
A Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed 
"With us to dwell. 

He came sweet influence to impart, 

A gracious willing Guest, 
While He can find one humble heart, 

Wherein to rest. 

And His that erentle voice we hear, 

Soft as the breath of even, [fear,' 

That checks each thought, that calms each I 
And speaks of heaven. 

And every virtue we possess, 

And every conquest won, 
An 1 every thought of holiness, 

Are His alone. 

Spirit of purity and grace, 
Our weakness, pitying, see : 

O make our hearts Thy dwelling-place, 
And worthier Thee. 

O praise the Father ; praise tbe Sex; 

Blest Spirit, praise to Thee ; 
All praise to God, the Three in One, 

The One in Thsee. Amen.

0THOU, from Whom all goodness flows, 
I lift my soul to Thee ; 
In all my sorrows, confiicrs. woes, 
Good Loun, remember me. 

If on my aching burdened heart 
My sins lie heavily, 

Thy pardon grant, Tny peace impart 
Good L02D, remember me. 

If trials sore obstruct my way, 
And ills I cannot flee, 

Then let my strength b? as my day: 
Good Lord, remember me. 

If worn with pain, disease, and . 

This feeble frame should be, 
Grant patience, rest, and kind relief; 

Good Loud, remember me. 

And oh, wh^n in the hour of death 

I bow to Thy decree. 
Jesl". receive my parting breath ; 

Good Loud, remember me. Amen.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." 
pLEST are the pure in heart, , He to the lowly soul 

Doth still Himself impart, 
And for His dwelling and His throne 
Chooseth the pure in heart 

J) For they shall see our God ; 
The secret of the Lord is theirs, 
Their soul is Christ's abode. 

The Lord, Who left the heavens, 
Our life and peace to bring, 
To dwell in lowliness with men, 
Their Pattern and their King ; 

Lozn, we Thy presenc:- seek, 
May ours this blessing be ; 
Give us a pure and lowly heart, 
A temple meet for Thee, 

All glory. Lord, to Thee, 
Whom heaven ail earth adore ; 
To Father, Son, and Holt Ghost, 
One God for evermore. Amen.

' Ilere have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come." 

BRIEF life is here our portion ; 
Brief sorrow, short-lived care : 
The life that knows no ending, 
The tearless life, is there. 

O happy retribution ! 

Short toil, eternal rest ; 
For mortals and for sinners 

A mansion with the blest. 

And now we fight the battle, 

But then shall wear the crown 
Of full and everlasting 

And passionless renown ; 

And now we watch and struggle, 

And now we live in hope, 
And Sion in her anguish 

With Babylon must cope ; 

But He Whom now we trust in 

Shall then be seen and known, 
And they that know and see Him 

Shall have Him for their own. 

The morning shall awaken, 

The shadow shall decay, 
And each true-hearted servant 

Shall shine as doth the day ; 

There God, our King and Portion, 

In fulness of His grace, 
Shall we behold for ever, 

And worship face to face. 

O sweet and blessed country

" Thy Name is

With sweetness fills the breast; 
But sweeter far Thy face to see,

A sweeter sound than Jesu's Name,

When creation was b gnn. 
When God spake and it was done. 

Songs of praise awoke the morn 
When the Prince of Peace was born ; 
Songs of praise arose when lie 
Captive led captivity. 
Heaven and eartii must pass away, 
Songs <'f praise shall crown that day;

And will man alone be dumb 
Till til r glorious kingdom come ? 
No, the Church delights to raise 
Psalms and hymns and songs of praise. 
Saints below, with heart and voice, 
Still in songs of praise rejoice :

We thank Thee for the ripened grain; 
For crops safe carried, sent to cheer 
Thy servants through another year ; 
For all sveet holy thoughts supplied 
By seed-time, and by harvest-tide. 

The bare dead grain, in autumn sown, 
Its robe of vernal green puts on ; 
Glad from its wintry grave it springs, 
Fresh garnished by the King oi : 
So, Lord, to those who sleep in Thee 
Shall new and glorious bodies be. 

Nor vainly of Thy "Word we ask 
A lesson from the reaper's task : 
So shall Thine angels issue forth ; 
The tares be burnt ; the just of earth, 
To wind and storm exposed no more, 
Be gathered to their Fatiiek's store. 

Dailv. O Losn, our prayers be said, 
As Thou hast taught, for daily bread ; 
But not alone our bodies t\ ed, 
Supply our fainting spirits' need ; 
O Bread of Life, from day to day 
Be Thou their Comfort, Food, and Stay!

Jesu, the balm of every wound, 

Tue sinuer*s only stay, 

Grant us, like Magdalene, to weep 

In this Thy mercy's day. 
Absolve us by Thy gracious Word, 

Fulfil us with Thy love, 
And guide us through the storms of life 

To perfect rest above. 
All praise, all glory be to Thee, everlasting Lonn, 
Whose mercy doth our souls forgive, 

Whose bounty doth reward. Amen.

THE radiant morn hath passed away, 
And spent too soon her golden store ; 
The shadows of departing day 
Creep on once more. 

Our life is but a fading dawn, 
Its glorious noon how quicklv past; 
Lead us. O Christ, when all' is gona, 
Safe home at last. 

Oh. by Thy soul-inspiring grace 

Uplift our hearts to realms on high ; 
Help us to look to that bright place 
Beyond the sky ; 

W here lig ht, and love, and joy, andpeaet 
In undivided empire reign. 
And thronging angels nev^r cease 
Their deathless strain ; 

"Where saints are clothed in spotless white, 
And evening shadows never fall, 
Where Thou. Eternal Light of Light, 
Art Lord of alL Amen.

AT even ere the sun was set, 
The sick O Lobd, around Thee lay; 
Oh, in what divers pains they met ! 
Oh, with what joy they went away ! 
Once more 'tis eventide, and we 
Oppressed with various ills draw near : 
What if Thy form we cannot see ? 
AVe know and feel that Thou art here. 
O Savious Christ, our woes dispel ; 
For tome are sick, and some are sad, 
And irome have never loved Thee well, 
And some have lost the love they had ; 
And some have found the world is vain, 
Yet from the world they break not free ; 

brought unto Him all that were diseased, 
And all the city was gathered together 

And some have friends who give them pain, 
Yet have not sought a friend in Thee ; 
And none, O Loud, have perfect rest, 
For none are wholly free from sin ; 
And they, who fain would serve Thee best, 
Are conscious most of wrong within. 
O Savioxjii Christ, Thou too art Man ; 
Thou hast been troubled, tempted, tried ; 
Thy kind but searching glance can scan 
The very wounds that shame would hide ; 
The touch has still its ancient power ; 
No word from Thee can fruitless fall ; 
Hear in this solemn evening hour, 
And in Thy mercy heal us all. Amen.

SAVIOUR, again to Thy dear Name we raise 
With one accord our parting hymn of praise ; 
We stand to bless Thee ere our worship cease, 
Then, lowly kneeling, wait Thy word cf peace. 

Grant us Thy peace upon our homeward way ; 
With Thee began, with Thee shall end the day; 
Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shamt, 
That in this house have called upon Thy Name. 

Grant us Thy peace, Lord, through the coming night, 
Turn Thou for us its darkness into light ; 
From harm and danger keep Thy children free, 
For dark and light are both alike to Thee. 

Grant us Thy p^ace throughout our earthly life, 
Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife ; 
Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease, 
Call us, O Lord, to Thine eternal peace. Amen.

ODAY of rest and gladness, 
O day of joy and light, 
O balm of care and sadness, 

Most beautiful, most bright; 
On thee the high and lowly 
Before th' eternal Throne 
Sing Holy, Holy, Holy, 
To the great Thkee in One. 

On thee, at the creation, 

The light first had its birth ; 
On thee for our salvation 

Cueist rose from depths of earth ; 
On thee our Losn victorious 

The SpruiT sent from heaven; 
And thus on thee most glorious 

A triple light was given. 

Thou art a cooling fountain 
In life's dry dreary sand ; 

From thee, like Pisgiih's mountain, 
We view our promised land ; 

A day of sweet refection, 

A day of holy love, 
A day of resurrection 

From earth to things abore. 

To-day on weary nations 

The heavenly Manna falls, 
To holy convocations 

The silver trumpet calls, 
"Where Gospel-light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams, 
And living water flowing 

With soul-refreshing streams. 

New graces ever gaining 

From this our day of rest, 
"We reach th? Rest, remaining 

To spirits of the blest ; 
To Holy Ghost be praises, 

ToFatqeb and to Sox ;

To Thee, blest Tusee in Oxe. Amea

TT7EARY of earth and laden with my sin, 
>Y I look at heaven and long to enter in, 
But there no evil thing may find a home : 
And yet I hear a voice that bids me M Come." 

So vile I am, how dare I hope to stand 

In the pure glory of that holy land ? 

Before the whiteness of that Throne appear ? 

Yet there are Hands stretched out to draw me near. 

The while I fain would tread the heavenly way, 
Evil is ever with me day by day ; 
Yet on mine ears the gracious tidings fall, 
"Repent, confess, thou shalt be loosed from alL" 

It is the voice of Jf.sus that I hear, 

His are the Hands stretched out to draw me near, 

And His the Blood that can for all atone, 

And set me faultless there before the Throne. 

'Twas He Who found me on the deathly wild, 
And made me heir of heaven, the Fathfe's child, 
And day by day, whereby my soul may live, 
Gives me His grace of pardon, and will give. 

O great Absolver, grant my soul may wear 
The lowliest garb of penitence and prayer, 
That in the Father's courts my glorious dress 
May be the garment of Thy righteousness. 

Yea, Thou wilt answer for me, Righteous Lord: 
Thine all the merits, mine the great reward ; 
Thine the sharp thorns, and mine the golden crown, 
Mine the life won, and Thine the life laid down. 

Naught can I bring, dear Lord, for all I owe, 
Yet let my full heart what it can bestow ; 
Like Mary's gift let my devotion prove, 
Forgiven greatly, how I greatly love. Amen,

OJESU CHPwIST, if aught there be 
That, more than all beside, 
In ever-painful memory 

Must in my heart abide, 
It is that deep ingratitude 

Which I to Thee have shewn, 
"Who didst for me in tears and Blood 

Upon the Cross atone. 
Alas, how with my actions all 

Has this defect entwined ; 
How has it poisoned with its gall 

My spirit, heart, and mind ! 

1 When he thought thereon, he •wept,"' 

Alas, through this, how many a gem 

I"ve rudely cast away. 
That might "have formed my diadem 

In everlasting day ! 
Yet thong 1 ! the time be past and gone, 

Though little mure remains. 
Though naught is all that can be done 

E'en with my utmost pains ; 
Still will I strive, O Saviour mine, 

To do what in me lies ; 
For never did Thy glance divine 

A contrite heart despise. Amen.

The woful deep of sin, g 

Of evil done in days gone by, 
Of evil now within. 

Out of the deep of fear.

Gently on thine arms extend. 
Thou alone wast counted worthy

That a shipwrecked race for ever 

Might a port of refuge gain, 
With the sacred Blood anointed 

Of the Lamb for sinners slain.

"Who led His people through the wilderness: for His mercy endureth for ever." 

PRAISE our great and gracious Lord, 
And call upon His Name ; 
To strains of joy tune every chord, 

His mighty acts proclaim ; 
Tell how He led His chosen race 

To Canaan's promised land ; 

Tell how His covenant of grace 

Unchanged shall ever stand. 

He gave the shadowing cloud hy day, 

The moving fire by night ; 
To guide His Israel on their way, 

He made their darkness light : 
And have not we a sure retreat, 

A Saviour ever ni^h, 
The same clear light to guide our feet, 

The Day-spring from on high ? 

We, too, have Manna from above, 

The Bread that came from heaven ; 
To us the same kind hand of love 

Has living waters given : 
A Rock have we, from whence the spring 

In rich abundance flows ; 
That Rock is Christ, our Priest, our King^ 

Who life and health bestows. 

O may we prize this blessed Food, 

And trust our heavenly Guide ; 
So shall we find death's fearful flood 

Serene as Jordan's tide, 
And safely reach that happy shore, 

The land of peace and rest, 
Where ancrels worship and adore 

In God's own Presence blest. AmeE

REJOICE, the Loed is King, 
Your Lord and King adore ; 
Mortals, give thanks and sing, 
And triumph evermore: 
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice ; 
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice,

The God of truth and love : 
"When He had purged our stains, 
He took His seat above: 
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice ; 
Eejoice, again I say, rejoice. 

His Kingdom cannot fail ; 

He rules o'er earth and heaven: 
The keys of death and hell 
Are t'o our Jesus given : 
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice ; 
Eejoice,'again I say, rejoice. 

He sits at God's risrht hand 

Till all His foes submit, 
And bow to His comma-id 
And fall beneath His feet : 
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice ; 
Kejoice, again I say, rejoice. Amen.

Many a tear." 

If I still hold closely to Him, 

What hath He at last ? 
" Sorrow vanquished, labour ended, 
Jordan past." 

If I ask Him to receive me, 

Will He say me nay ? 
" Not till earth, and not till heaven 
Pass away."

Is He sure to bless?

With this I shield my breast, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

Does sadness fill my mind ? 
A solace here I find, 

May Jesu6 Christ be praised-' 
Or fades my earthly bliss ! 
My comfort still is this, 

May JE6US Christ be praised. 

The night becomes as day, 
When from the heart we say 

May Jesus Christ be praised: 
The powers of darkness fear, 
"When this sweet chant they hear, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

In heaven's eternal bliss 
The loveliest strain is this, 

May Jesus Christ be praised: 
Let earth, and sea, and sky 
From depth to height reply 

May Jesus Christ be praised. 

Be this, while life is mine, 
My canticle divine, 

May Jesus Christ be praised 
Be this the eternal song, 
Through all the ages on, 

May Jesus Christ be praised. Amen,

U And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three : hut the greatest of these is 

Faith will vanish into sight ; 

GRACIOUS Spirit, Holt GnosT, 
Taught by Thee we covet most 
Of Thy gifts at Pentecost 

Holy, heavenly Love. 
Love is kind and suffers long, 
Love is meek, and thinks no wrong, 
Love than dearh itself more strong; 

Therefore, give us Love. 
Prophecy will fade away, 
Melting in the light of day ; 
Love will ever with us stay ; 

Therefore, give us Love. 

Hope be emptied in delight; 

Love in heaven will shine more bright; 

Therefore, give us Love. 
Faith and Hope and Love we see 
Joining hand in hand agree; 
But the greatest of the three 

And the best is Love. 
From the overshadowing 
Of Thy gold and silver wing 
Shed on us, who to Thee sing, 

Holy, heavenly Love. Amen.

U Strong in faith resist the foe: 

Boundless is the pledged reward 

Unto them who serve the Loed. 

'Tis no palm of fading leaves 

That the conqueror's hand receives; 

Joys are his serene and pure, 

Light that ever shall endure. 

For the souls that overcome 

Waits the beauteous heavenly Home, 


Where the Blessed evermore 
Tread, on high, the starry floor. 
Passing soon and little worth 
Are the things that tempt on earth; 
Heavenward lift Ihy soul's regard;

Thsee in One, Thy Name we praise.

' In the beginning was the Wosd, and the Woud was with God, and the Word 
■was God. All things were made bv Him.' 1 

JE?US is God: the solid earth, 
The ocean broad and bright, 
The countless stars, like golden dust, 

That strew the skies at night. 
The wheeling storm, the dreadful fire, 

The pleasan* wholesome air, 
The summer's sun, the winter's frost, 
His own creations were. 

Jesus is God : the glorious bands 

Of golden angels sing 
Songs of adoring praise to Him, 

Their Maker and their Kir.--. 
He was true God i:i Bethlehem's crib, 

On Calvary's Cross true Gor>, 
He Who in heaven eternal reigned 

In time on earth abode. 

Jesus is God : let sorrow come, 

And pain, and every ill. 
All are worth while, for all are means 

His glory to fulfil ; 
Worth while a thousand years of woe 

To speak one little word, 
If by that "I believe" we own 

The Godhevd of our Losd. Amen.

1 He is the Head of the Body, the Church." 

THE Church's one foundation 
Is Jkstjs Christ her Lord; 
She is His new creation 

By water and the Word : 
From heaven He came and sought her 

To be His holy Bride, 
With His own Blood He bought her 
And for her life He died. 

Elect from every nation, 

Yet one o'er all the earth, 
Her charter of salvation 

O le Loud, one Faith, one Birth ; 
One Holy Name she blesses, 

Partakes one Holy Food, 
And to one hope she presses 

With every grace endued. 

Though with a scornful wonder 

Men see her sore opprest, 
By schisms reut asunder, 

By heresies distrust, 

Yet saints their watch are keeping. 
Their cry goes up, " How long?" 

And soon the night of weeping 
Shall be the morn of song. 

Mid toil, and tribulation, 

And tumult of her war, 
She waits the consummation 

Of peace for evermore ; 
Till with the vision glorious 

Her longing eyes are blest, 
And the great Church victorious 

Shall be the Church at rest 

Yet she on earth hath union 

With God the Three in Oxi, 
And mystic sweet communion 

With those whose rest is won: 
O happy ones and holy! 

Lord, give us grace that we 
Like them, the meek and lowly, 

On high may dwell with Thee. Amen.

M Eye hath not seen nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the 
things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath 
reveled them unto us by His Spirit." 

LIGHTS abode. Celestial Salem, 
Vision whence true peace doth spring, 
Brighter than the heart can fancy, 

Mansion of the Highest King; 
O how glorious are the praises 
Which of thee the prophets smg! 

There for ever and for ever 

Alleluia is out-poured, 
For unending, for unbroken 

Is the feast-day of the Lord ; 
All is pure, and all is holy 

That within thy walls is stored. 

There no cloud nor passing vapour 
Dims the brightness of the air ; 

Endless noon-day glorious noon-day, 
From the Sun of suns is there ; 
• There no night brings rest from labour, 
I\r unknown are toil and care. 

O how glorious and re^plendpnt, 
Fragile body, shalt thou be. 

When endued with so much beauty, 
Full of health, and strong and free, 

Full of vigour, full of pleasure 
That shall last eternally! 

Now with gladness, now with courage 
B^ar the burden on thee laid, 

That hereafter these thy labours 
May with endless gifts be paid, 

And in everlasting glory 
Thou with brightness be arrayed. 

Laud and honour to the Father, 
Laud and honour to the Sox, 

Laud and honour to the Spirit, 
Ever Tira and ever One, 

Consubstantial, Co-eternal 
While unending ages run. Amen.

' The time is short/' 

A FEW more years shall roll, 
A A few more seasons come, 

And we shall be with those that rest 
Asleep within the tomb: 
Then, O my Lokd, prepare 
My soul for that great day; 

wash me in Thy precious Blood, 
And take my sins away. 

A few more suns shall set 
O'er these dark hills of time, 

And we shall be where suns are not, 
A far serener clime: 
Then. my Lord, prepare 
My soul f>r that blest clay j 

O wash me in Thy precious Blood, 
And take my sins away. 

A few more storms shall beat 
On this wild rocky shore. 
And we shall be where tempests ceaie, 
And surges swell no more : 

Then. my Lord, prepare 

My soul for that calm day ; 

wash me in Thy precious Blood, 

And take my sins away. 

A few more struggles here, 
A few more partings o'er, 

A few more toils, a few more tears, 
And we shall weep no more : 
Then, O my Loud, prepare 
My soul for that bright day ; 

O wash me in Thy precious Blood, 
A. id take my sins away. 

Tis but a little while 
And He shall come again. 

Who died that we might live, Who lires 
That we with Him may reign: 
Then, O my Lord, prepare

O wash me in Thy precious Blood, 
And take my sins away. Amen.

In this our evil day : 
To all Thy tempted followers give 
The power to watch and pray. 

Long as our fiery trials last, 

Long as the cross we bear,

The Spirit of interceding grace 

Give us in fairh to claim ; 
To wrestle till we see Thy Face, 

And know Thy hidden Name, 

Till Thou Thy perfect love impart, 

Till Thou Thyself bestow, 
Be this the cry of every heart, 

" I will not let Thee go :

Thou tell Thy Name to me ; 
With all Thy great salvation bless, 

And make me all like Thee.

Around the path I tread ;

Do Thou, O Lord, keep watch within, 
And save my soul from wrong. 

Still let me ever watch and pray, 

And feel that I am frail : 
That if the tempter cross my way, 

Yet he may not prevail. 

To Fathkr, Son*, and Halt Ghost,

Tells of love unfeumed, 

Love that never die-s.

Dawns the light from heaven, 
In our sadness bringing 

News of sin forgiven ; 
Life has lost its shadows, 

Pure the light within ; 
Thou hast shed Thy radiauco 

On a world of sia 
Brighter still and brighter 

Glows the western sun, 
Shedding all its gladness

OWHAT the joy and the glory must be, 
Those endless Sabbaths the blessed ones see; 
Crown for the valiant, to weary ones rest ; 
God shall be all and in all ever blest. 

"What are the Monarch. His court, and TTis throne? 
What are the peace, and the joy that they own?

All that they feel could as fully declare.

"Wish and fulfilment can severed be ne'er, 

Nor the thing prayed for come short of the prayer. 

There, where no troubles distraction can bring, 
We the sweet anthems of Sion shall sing, 
While for Thy grace, Loud, their voices of praise 
Thy blessed people eternally raise. 

There dawns no Sabbath, no Sabbath is o'er, 
Those Sabbath-keepers have one evermore; 
One and unending is that triumph-song 
Which to the angels and us shall belong. 

Now in the meanwhile with hearts raised on high, 
We for that country must yearn and must sigh; 
Seeking Jerusalem, dear nntive land. 
Through our long exile on Babylon's strand. 

Low before TTim with our praises we fall. 
O p Whom, and in Whom, and through Whom are all: 
Of Whom, the Father ; and in Whom, the Sov; 
Through Whom, the Spirit, with Them ever One. Amen.

VT Spreads forth her wings of love 
To welcome to her breast a child 
Begotten from above ; 

Begotten at the font 
By Gon the Spi hit's power, 
A gentle lamb from Satan snatched 
In childhood's helpless hour. 

E'en now around the font, 
Unseen by mortal eye, 
Bright ministering angels watch 
The wondrous mystery. 

Hands upon them, and blessed them." 

There to receive their charge 

In readiness I hey stand, 
And long to guide its feeble steps 

To their own happy land. 

And all the host of heaven 

Rejoice before the Lord, 
To see a child of fallen man 

A child of God restored.

BEHOLD us, Lord, before Thee met 
Whom each bright Angel serves and fears, 
Who on Thy Throne rememberest yet 
Thy spotless Boyhood's quiet years 
Whose feet the hills of Nazareth trod, 
Who art true Man and perfect God. 

To Thee we look, in Thee confide,

We make the three great vows our own, 
And ask, in Thine appointed way, 
Confirm us in Thy grace to-day. 

We need Thee more than tongue can speak, 
'Mid foes that well might cast us down ; 
But thousands, onee as young and weak, 
Have fought the fi^ht, and won the crown 
We ask the help that bore them through, 
We trust the Faithful and the True. 

So bless us with the gift complete 
By hands of Thy chief pastors given, 
That awful Presence kind a'id sweet 
Which comes in sevenfold might from heaven;

By Thy pains and consolations 

Draw the Gentiles unto Thee: 
Of Thy Cross the wondrous story, 

Be it to the nations told ; 
Let them see Thee in Thy glory,

And manv a quickened soul within 
There lurks the secret love of sin ; 
A wayward will, or anxious fears,

TENDER Shepherd, Thou hast stilled 
Now Thy little lamb's brief weeping: 
Ah, how peaceful, pale, and mild, 
In its narrow bed 'tis sleeping, 
And no sigh of anguish sore 
Heaves that little bosom more. 

In this world of care and pain, 

Loud, Thou wouldst no longer leave it; 
To the sunny, heavenly plain 

Thou dost now with joy receive it; 
Clothed in robes of spotless white 
Now it dwells with Thee in light. 

Ah. Losr> Jrsr, grant that we 

"Where it lives may soon be living, 
And the lovely pastures see 

That its heavenly food are giving; 
Then the Grain of death we prove, 
Though Thou take what most we love.

"The child Jesus." 

ONCE in royal David's City 
Stood a lowly cattle shed, 
Where a mother laid her Baby, 

In a manger for His bed : 
Mary was that mother mild, 
Jesus Christ her little Child. 

He came down to earth from heaven 

Who is God and Lord of all, 
And His shelter was a stable, 

And His cradle was a stall ; 
With the poor, and mean, and lowly, 
Lived on eartn our Saviour Holy. 

And. through all His wondrous childhood, 

He would honour, and obey. 
Love, and watch the lowly maiden 

In whose gentle arms lie lay ; 
Christian children all must be 
^ld, obedient, good as He. 

For He is our childhood's Pattern, 
Day by day like us He grew, 

He was little, weak, and helpless, 
Tears and smiles like us He kneir; 

And He feeleth for our sadness. 

And He shareth in our gladness. 

And our eyes at last shall see Him, 
Through His own redeeming love, 

For that Child so dear and gentle 
Is our Lord in heaven above ; 

And He leads His children on 

To the place where He is gone. 

N I in that poor lowly stable, 

With the oxen standing by, 
We shall see Him ; but in heaven, 

Set at God's right hand on high ; 
When like stars His children crowned 
All in white shall wait around. Amen, 

Hymn 362. 

"While we were yet sinners, Ciirist died for us.' 

THERE is a green hill faraway, 
Without a city wall, 

Where the dear Lord was crucified 

Who died to save us all. 
We may not know, we cannot tell 

What pains He had to bear, 
But we believe it was for us 

He hung and suffered there. 
ne died that we might be forgiven, 

He died to make us good, 

That we might go at last to heaven, 

Saved by His precious Blood. 
There was no other good enough 

To pay the price of sin, 
He only could unlock the gate 

Of heaven, and let us in. 
O, dearly, dearly has He loved, 

And we must love Him too. 
And trust in His redeeming Blood, 

And try His works to do. Amen.

Oh ! hearts are bruised and dead, 

And homes are bare and cold, 
And lambs, for Whom the Shepherd bled, 

Are straying from the fold. 

To comfort and to bless, 

To find a balm for woe, 
To tend the lone and fatherless 

Is angels' work below. 

The captive to release. 

To Clop the lopt to bnng, 
To teach the way of life and peace, 

It is a CHRIST-Iike thing. 

And we believe Thv word, 

Though dim our faith mav be ; 
Wh*te\ r for Thine we do, O Lord, 

We do it unto Thee. 

All misrhr, all prai<=p. be Thine,

And Spirit, Bond of love divine, 

While endless ages run. Amen.

perfectly whole." 

THINE arm, O Lord, in days of old 
Was strong to heal and save ; 
It triumphed o'er disease and death, 

O'er darkness and the grave; 
Tj Thee they went, the blind, the dumb, 

The palsied and the lame, 
The leper with his bunted life, 
The sick with fevered frame. 

And lo. Thy touch brought life and health, 

Gave speech, and strensrth. and sight ; 
And youth renewed and frenzv calmed 

Owned The<\ the Lord of Light; 
And n^w, O Lord, be near to bless

Thou L<>sn of life and death ; 
Restore and quicken, soothe and bless

Give wisdom's heavenlv lore,

IN the hour of trial,

Lest, by base denial,

Wh : »n Thou seest me waver, 

With a look recall,

Would this vain world charm, 
Or its sordid treasures 

Spread, to work me harm;

Cross-crowned Calvary. 

If with sore affliction, 

Thou in love chastise, 
Pour Thy benediction 

On the sacrifice ; 
Thim upon Thine altar. 

Freely offered up. 
Though the flesh may falter, 

Faith shall drink the cup. 

Whpn, in du~t and ashes, 

To the grave I sink, 
While Heaven's glory fl\6heB 

O'er the shelving brink: 
On Thy truth relyi ig, 

Through that mortal strife,

Hither bring, in true consent, 
Heart, and voice, and instrument. 
To your voices tune the lure. 
Let not tongue nor string be mute, 
Not a creature dumb be found 
That hath either voice or sound. 

Let such things as do not live 
In still music praises give ; 
L^wly pipe, ye worms that creep 
On the earth' or in the deep. 
Birds, your warbling treble sing j 
Clouds, your peals of thunder ring ; 
8u:i and moon, exalted higher. 
And bright stars, augment the choir. 

Come, ye sons of human race, 
In this chorus take your place 
And amid this mortal throng 
B? ye masters of ri.e song. 
L 1 :, in praise of God. the sound 
Run a never-ending round : 
That our holy hymn may be 
Everlasting, as is He. 

So from hear^n on earth Tie shall 
Let His gracious blessings fall, 
All this husre wide orb we see 
Shall one choir, one temple be. 
Then our voices we will rear, 
Till we fill it everywhere.
